Policymakers use our data to inform the design and implementation of evidence-based policymaking.

We are also asked to provide the customer perspective. We respond to as many key consultations as we can, and regularly share our views at industry events, as well as through the media.

Some of the work we are currently engaged in includes:

  • Future of the funeral plan market
    We are engaged with the Treasury, FCA, CMA and funeral plan industry to create better protection and clarity for consumers in this market.

  • Insurance policy
    We've been feeding into the FCA’s work on the implementation of the Insurance Distribution Directive and the publication of its insurance value measures.

  • Nationwide Consumer Brexit Panel
    Working alongside a panel of experts to consider the impact of Brexit on consumers.

  • Open Banking Project
    Working to ensure consumers' interests are represented in this important project, which will allow customers' personal banking data to be used by third party software providers – facilitating more effective comparison and efficient money management.

  • Competition & Markets Authority
    Engaging with the CMA on its work around the comparison site market.

  • Transparency Taskforce
    We are strategic supporters of the Transparency Taskforce, and James Daley is one of the organisation's ambassadors.

  • Access to Cash Review
    We are a member of the independent Access to Cash panel, considering how we continue to protect access to cash for those who rely on it, as cash usage declines. The panel is chaired by former head of the Financial Ombudsman Service, Natalie Ceeney. Fairer Finance's managing director gave evidence to the Scottish Affairs Select Committee, feeding in the findings of the Access to Cash Review into the Committee's Access to Financial Services Inquiry in March 2019 (see image, right).
